Fine listed Grade II village property and coach house with annexe set within beautiful mature gardens in the heart of this most attractive of villages.
Beech House is a most handsome stone village property under a thatched roof and is justifiably listed Grade II as being of architectural interest. The house is thought to date back to the 16th century and forms part of this most attractive of street scene, attached on one side to another stone property. Beech House is understood to have featured in the film Emma by Jane Austen, starring Gwyneth Paltrow and there are some charming period features including a dining hall with flagstone floor and Hamstone fireplace, sitting room with inglenook fireplace and wood burning stove, drawing room with open fireplace and marble surround some working shutters and some exposed ceiling timbers. In addition listed building consent has recently been acquired to provide a new kitchen space in the laundry/store and tack room.
The house is approached from this charming village street via a private drive which sweeps round to the rear and also leads to a pretty detached former Coach House providing garaging on the ground floor with steps leading to the first floor studio apartment, comprising open plan sitting room/kitchen, bedroom and en suite bathroom. The gardens are major feature at Beech House; immediately to the rear of the property is a stone terrace and level lawn with mature shrubs and plants and a brick path leads past the stables, store and Coach House to the lower lawn and the magnificent Beech tree which gives the property its name. The lower lawn leads down to a brook at the bottom of the property and on the western boundary is a further area of garden in use as an orchard and kitchen garden.
